The AP reports that Senator Murkowski is still considering her options:
Murkowski told The Associated Press on Tuesday that she’s been inundated with calls and e-mails from supporters, asking her not to leave the race. She says she’s been humbled, and is listening – and weighing her options.
She met briefly with the Libertarian candidate Tuesday, after friends of hers – without her direction – approached the Libertarian party, asking if they’d consider a Murkowski candidacy. She says she had an interesting discussion with candidate David Haase but made clear she’s not interested in changing her “political stripes.”
Murkowski also could seek a write-in candidacy, which she called high risk. Or, she could stay out of the race.
